Sammy Hagar & The Circle have quickly established themselves as one of the most emphatic and exciting live acts on tour today, seamlessly ripping through career-spanning hits from Montrose, Van Halen, Sammy’s solo career, as well as the band’s hit debut studio album, Space Between, which scored them the #1 Rock Album and #4 overall album on the Billboard 200 in 2019. Setlists include hits like, “There’s Only One Way To Rock”, “Finish What Ya Started”, “Mas Tequila”, “I Can’t Drive 55”, “Can’t Hang”, “Rock Candy”, “Right Now” and many more.

“I love some friendly competition on stage and that’s exactly what this is going to be,” said Sammy Hagar. “David and I have nothing but the highest respect for one another, but we would also like to blow the other guy off the stage! Add in Night Ranger and the fans will have one hell of a night of music.”

Whitesnake, the platinum-selling hard rock hitmakers led by David Coverdale, boasts a catalogue of powerful hard rock and chart-topping power balladsthat spans the decades with seminal and anthemic hits such as “Here I Go Again”, “Still of the Night”, “Fool for Your Loving”,

and “Is This Love” to name a few. 

“The Red Rocker & The Snake??? OMG…I wanna see that show myself!!!,” said David Coverdale of Whitesnake. “I’m  a big fan of Sammy Hagar, Michael, Vic & Jason…We’re gonna have a blast together !! See Y’All There, People!!!”

Night Ranger have earned widespread acclaim that includes multi-platinum and gold album status, fueled by an impressive string of instantly recognizable hits, including “Sister Christian”, “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me”, “When You Close Your Eyes”, the anthemic “(You Can Still) Rock In America”, along with “Sentimental Street”, “Goodbye”, “Sing Me Away”, and “Four in the Morning.”

“Night Ranger is pumped to be on the tour with Sammy and Whitesnake. Night Ranger’s first tour was with Sammy, and the two Whitesnake guitarists Reb and Joel have both played in Night Ranger,” said Night Ranger. “This gives the tour and ‘The Circle’ even more meaning to us! You can still rock in America for sure.”
